NMR testing is a relatively new approach for testing honey samples for fraud and shows great potential as a non-targeted analytical test. IRMS (sometimes referred to as SIRA) has been, and still is, the only standard method for detecting exogenous sugars in honey. But what does that mean for your laboratory? Will IRMS be surpassed by this new analytical technology? Should you invest you time, energy and money into NMR?
This white paper discusses the situation with NMR and IRMS testing of honey and will provide you with the insight you need as you prepare your honey testing facility for the future.
